Startup repair loop

Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Intel Dual core CPU
3GB memory
1TB sata HDD
Nvidia GT220 GPU

While browsing the web last night I came across a page which had an awful lot of popups. Next thing I knew the PC rebooted itself and I was stuck in a loop of system repair. I have tested all of my hardware which has passed every diagnostic test, ran chkdsk, restored registy backups and ran system restore. None have worked.

Posting this on my iPhone so all help is appreciated. Thanks.

You might want to download malwarebytes and run in safe mode just to be on the cautious side.

I cannot access safe mode. Brings me straight back to startup repair. Thanks for the help.

I do not have a repair disk but I do have a recovery partition in which I have tried everything on except factory reset. Any more ideas before I format the drive? Thanks.

Given that you cant boot in any manner your options are limited

Solved! For anyone who is interested it was with the last ditch attempt of the bootrec.exe tool

I am having much the same problem and can't get anything to work. I am curious as to how you used bootrec.exe and what exactly it did to help the problem! Thanks
